  1. Watch Jack White Sing Lorde’s “Royals” In Milwaukee
    Jack White has been incorporating a lot of covers into his set recently — just this weekend, he did a quick shoutout to Jay Z’s “99 Problems” and last month he covered Kanye, Beck, and the Stooges all in one show. The latest to get the cover treatment is Lorde’s “Royals,” which seems to be [...]

  2. Tuatara – “Snakecharmer”
    Tuatara is a band with a lot of pedigree: started by R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck, the Screaming Trees’ Barrett Martin, Luna and the Chills’ bassist Justin Harwood, and saxophone player Skerik in the late ’90s, they’ve been consistently putting out albums of their rock/jazz fusion. We’re already heard “The Skeleton Getdown” from their upcoming new [...]

  3. Iggy Azalea-Loving Americans Aren’t Ready For A Tupac Musical Says Saul Williams
    The Tupac-inspired musical Holler If Ya Hear Me closed on Sunday after only 55 performances and a month on Broadway. The show starred Saul Williams, who talked to Rolling Stone about the musical’s closing and put the blame on a lot of people. First, he tackled the helpful Broadway ticket-selling TKTS workers for being honest [...]

  4. The Rentals – “1000 Seasons”
    Last month, the Rentals announced that they were releasing their first album in a decade and a half and shared the new song “Thought Of Sound.” The group is still primarily the project of ex-Weezer bassist Matt Sharp but he’s joined by an all-new lineup and “1000 Seasons” makes good use of them, with solid [...]

  5. Menace Beach – “Lowtalkin’”
    Earlier this month we heard “Tennis Court,” one half of a double-A-side single from Leeds duo Menace Beach. Now comes “Lowtalkin’,” the other song on the record. In contrast to its subject matter, it’s an outgoing outburst of frantic punk rock laced with pop sensibilities. Hear it below. The “Tennis Court” / “Lowtalkin’” single is [...]

  6. Album Of The Week: Courtship Ritual Pith
    I might as well get some boring full-disclosure stuff out of the way first: Nick Sylvester, a great friend and former colleague of mine, produced this album, and he’s putting it out on Godmode, his label. The fact that Nick worked on this album has a lot to do with the fact that I listened [...]

  7. SBTRKT – “New Dorp, New York” (Feat. Ezra Koenig)
    Three years ago, the masked, mysterious London dance producer SBTRKT released his self-titled debut album, which showed how sparse, architectural club music could absolutely work as pop if you did it right. The album helped introduce singers like Jessie Ware and Sampha, and when Drake jumped on a remix a few months later, that just [...]

  8. Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) – “A Keepsake”
    “A Keepsake” is the second single we’ve heard off the eclectically named Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)’s forthcoming album, You Will Eventually Be Forgotten, their first since 2009. Michigan couple Keith and Cathy Latinen premiered their first new song earlier this month, and “A Keepsake” is a fitting follow-up to the slow wail [...]

  9. Zammuto – “Hegemony”
    Nick Zammuto is getting ready to release Anchor, the second album of his post-Books solo career. We already heard the bloopy breeziness of “Great Equator,” and now he’s released a very different offering, “Hegemony.” The new one features hard-hitting live percussion before shifting into a crunchy guitar solo to close things out. It’s a far [...]

  10. Flying Lotus Announces You’re Dead! LP, Tour
    We were already anticipating a new album from Flying Lotus last year. He’d been talking about it online and playing new material live. Now we’ve officially gotten word that it’s coming this fall. The producer and Brainfeeder boss’ fifth album will be titled You’re Dead!; it follows 2012′s spacious, dreamy Until The Quiet Comes. There’s [...]
